After the Application: How to Increase Your Chances of Getting Hired. Question from Erin Ford
What are steps I can take after applying to a job online? Whether it's via a job board or the company's website, what are ways in which I can increase my chances of having my application seen/considered?
In our CCG Network:
Raven - our intern. Busy during launch if she didn’t follow up I would have hired her.
1. Follow up by email. Don’t give up. Show your passion. Don’t let them forget about you.
Ashley Nicole Hammond I submitted an application online and the company I applied for said that my application/interest was received and that if my qualities matched what they were looking for that within two week they would be in contact with me. A week went by and I haven't hear anything so I called to follow up and got an interview this way and interviewed this week and landed a second interview for the same position right after. This helped me.
2. Find the recruiter or hiring manager.
(Make sure LI profile is professional). Tell them you applied and really want to work there. Here’s why you are qualified. Would love to tell you more. Available at number for an interview.
3. Get a referral from anyone who works at the same company on LinkedIn. Start networking with people who work there.
Share on social media that you applied on their FB page, Instagram page, twitter account. Be active and make your brand known on social! Send a DM. Stand out.
